I know this isnt the Jack Kirby version but it looks very similar to it for photo references…

BTW, Joe, where are the ripped pants from that you’re using in your Shark Man renders?

I decided to update my M4 Superman while I took a break from trying to troubleshoot DSON, and this is the result.  The look is deliberately classic, ‘cause quite frankly, the latest rendition of the suit is just a big eyesore for me.  I was never really fond of Singer’s version (the codpiece rode too low, for starters) but after seeing what DC and Snyder have cooked up for “Man of Steel,” I was ready to beg the Powers That Be to bring Singer back!  I especially can’t stand the new S-crest!  One of the most iconic emblems in the world, and they still feel the need to “fix” something that was far from broken in the first place!  And no John Williams theme music?  I’m sorry, but that tune has become an integral part of the character by now!

So, in a way, this is as much for protest as it is for fun, LOL!  All ranting aside, I may yet give “Man of Steel” a chance.  It looks like the writing could be good, if I can manage to look past the aesthetic blasphemies.

That reminds me… Joe, is your new supper suit for Genesis mapped similarly to your Mach suit you did for M4??  If so getting Marvel and Lightening Lad over will be easy peasy.  I have Chameleon Boy’s skin textures about 80% done and doing a 2nd skin for him as well but need boots that have the point up in the front.  Had to redo the antennae ... somehow the transfer from M4 to Genesis failed but did that using DS 4.0.  Seems OK redone in 4.5.  Vest is .... not to my liking.  Need to take that into ZB and zoop it up some more now that I have a better idea of what I’m doing.  Want it to look like a mixture of Cockrum’s Cham and James Sherman’s Cham.

It’s a different mesh.  The seams are in about the same place.  But they’re different meshes, they’re not going to have the same uv map.

Belt, knee pads and revised mask.  The belt is inflated due to a push modifier.  It’s two sided and the back was pushing through the front where it was colliding with the rear shell.  I may go back and turn it into a one sided mesh.

Great looking Superman you have there. smile

I agree with everything you’ve said. Hate the S shield they “fixed” in the 2013 movie. It looks a whole lot like the one Superman of Earth-2 wears and I always hated that one!

As for watching the movie itself…I won’t touch it with a ten foot pole. In interviews, Synder said a significant portion of the film will be of a war torn Krypton. Then we have Jonathan and Martha Kent in the movie, which means another origins movie on top of that. Is there going to be room enough for us fans to FINALLY see Superman throw a punch? Yeah…but probably only a 1 minute boss battle in the end, which is a serious turn off and the failure of some movies now-a-days (i.e. Iron Man 2, Thor). Which is beginning to become more and more common. We don’t need another origins film, everyone knows Superman’s origin and we don’t need a recycled villian from a former movie and we most certainly don’t need to see a story about a war torn Krypton. Not interested in that.

And don’t get me started on a recycled villian….again…namely Zod….

Genesis is head & shoulders above “Genesis 2” (or better known as BF2/BM2) and is the FAR superior figure. Why? It doesn’t suffer from the UN-necessary gender split
